Leptictis acutidens (Leidy 1868, Rose 2006, early Oligocene) is an extinct tenrec with long limbs. Among tested taxa it nests between Anagale and Andrewsarchus.
Leptictis has one fewer premolar and one more molar than Anagale. The tail was probably longe than preserved. The tiny manus appears to have only three digits. Note the large calcaneal heel, a trait usually found in digitigrade running mammals, like Rhynchocyon.
